I dont think there is much realistic hope of getting windows to authenticate to 
freeIPA......the others should be able to and the fedora docs on the freeipa 
documentation web page list a specific method for macs for one (but I have not 
tried it yet, but I will be)....ubuntu has been mentioned before....I have to 
try/do that as well....

Siggi sent me some notes a while back,


Ubuntu client install


sudo apt-get install krb5-user libpam-krb5 libpam-ccreds auth-client-config

maybe also need libpam-ldap libnss-ldap

Use ipa-getkeytab on a IPA server to retrieve the keytab for the host, and copy 
this to /etc/krb5.keytab on the Ubuntu client.

[root@ipa1 ~]# ipa-getkeytab -s ipa1.ix.test.com -p 
host/ubuntu-client.ix.test.com -k /tmp/buntuclient_krb5.keytab

If you prefer you can use something like CFengine to automate the whole process.


Hope that helps.............

Subject: [Freeipa-users] LDAP authentication into FreeIPA

Hello all,

This may be my general LDAP illiteracy - I only dealth with it briefly years 
ago - but I am trying to set up a FreeIPA server on Fedora 16 to have my Macs 
and Ubuntu Linux machines as well as a couple of Windows boxes to authenticate 
to - and seem not to be making much forward progress. Is there a step-by-step 
writeup on how to do that sort of thing?

Thanks for any and all help.
